          I'm experiencing a similar issue.

          Are you running QVS v9 on a Windows 2008 server?

              I am using Windows 2008 and QVS v9 SR 5 .

              is it problem of Windows 2008 ?

                  I'm distributing my qvw files to a file share for use by the production QVS. Windows 2008 doesn't have any problem communicating to this location, but the qlikview publisher seems to. I created a batch file that writes the current date and time to a file on this drive every 5 minutes. This seems to keep alive the connection that Publisher uses and has reduced the amount of distribution errors by about 95%. I'm going to changes the refresh rate on this batch job to every 2 minutes in an attempt to eliminate the symptoms completely.

                  I know this is not a fix for the Publisher issue, and it might not be beneficial based on your situation, but it has helped me eliminate several possible root causes external to QlikView Publisher.

                  Hopefully this might help,

                      By setting the keep alive type batch job to run every 2 minutes has eliminated the reoccurence of the distribution error for the last 24 hours. Hopefully this will allow the support team to focus on why Publisher is unable to open a connection on its own.

                      Good luck,
